Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Herndon, VA

I worked at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Global brand name recognition in Technology.

Cons

Pay is not competitive, heavily bureucratic company structure, too many management layers, not quite a meritocracy. Performance assessments are geared towards appearing to find "fault" rather than growth opportunities. Legend has it that

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Align talent with projects that utilize their core competencies. Turnover is high due to dissatisfaction with nature of project challenge and fuzzy career advancement.
